Milwaukee Man Not Treated Correctly for Stroke

Sam Denny realized he was suffering a stroke and drove himself to the closest urgent care facility. This nearby facility was a part of a hospital system with a certified Primary Stroke Center. When he arrived at the stroke center, he did not receive a clot-dissolving drug called tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA). This drug is approved for stopping strokes and drastically reducing the risk of disability associated with strokes.

Denny was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for treatment of his stoke after going to the stoke center. Froedtert Hospital said they would have treated Denny with the t-PA if he had arrived sooner. Unfortunately, the window of opportunity to treat Denny with t-PA had lapsed by the time he arrived. Denny will need months of treatment for his disabilities.

Medical malpractice results when a medical professional fails to treat a patient correctly, misdiagnoses a patient, gives a patient the wrong medication, or acts in a negligent manner. Medical malpractice can cause the serious personal injury or wrongful death of a patient. In the case of Sam Denny, a medical facility that is certified to treat stroke victims, and had the proper medication to administer for a stroke, failed to get him the proper treatment in a timely manner.

Medical professionals have a responsibility to treat patients correctly and quickly. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, please contact the Milwaukee medical malpractice attorneys at the Cochran Firm to schedule a consultation about your case.
